Profettor Witter. The death af this dHUn - f ul - ke - d character has excited the most sincere aud heart - felt regret. He may justly be consi dereda lots not merely to the university which be adorned bv hi talents and labors, nor to the medical profession to which be was so long and usefully deToted: but to the interests of science throughout our country. 1 We cannot present a better evidence of the high esteem in which he was universally held, than by stating that on the reception of the melancholy intelligence the Professors of the College of Th aiciwn and Surgeons, of ths city, sutpeaded their lectures, ami the students of the uuiveisity uiuuimoudy patted the fallowing f solut'ous : At a meelicg of the Students of the College o: .

Coventor iinbmi received the following import ant despatch from eu G iiui on yesterday I v express, dated tlcul - quarters, llarttord, U January 8, 1818. . SIR I received on my way to this place Uie 6th intt. fiom lieut. col. Arbuckle, reports ol the slat of bis command up to (ho 21st Decern ber by which 1 learn thai the detachment with transports uu - Jer major Muhlcnburghad becust tacked about thirty nn!. - below Fort icolt by a force of lidiaus and blocks, estimated at from (i WW I ft ' .

The vessels were so fortified with bulwarks as to secure our troops irom the ene toy's shot, exrept when carrying out the anchors to warp, or when working with the rigging. The loss ofa vessel u not apprehended nor will the delay be likely to produce any serious louse uoeures to our troops above their supplies be big sufficient for some time beyond the period a! which others I have ordtired, and have reason to believe are on the way, are expected to arrive, and which will be taken up the river in keel boats, secured aguust the enemj'a shot. A small work command 1 bv cant. M'lntosh. 12 aide abve Fort Scott, has been attacked a.id urrounded for several days,, by a large party but though the captain's force amounted to uo more than forty, he maintained Ins work without toe loss ol a man. I he ludians Gudiug tliem elves unable to make any impression upon tbel work or garrison, and having suffered Irom our shot, retired. Capt. M'luloah's commaud ha since been withdrawn. A friendly chief, Wm. Perry man, having mu - d a considerable parly or warriors on the Cha tahochie, for the purpose of protecting the friend ly traders below the line, 'and of aiding our troops, was attacked by the hostile party, and i supposed to have fallen, with Messrs. Hainbly and Doyle. It is reported that most of the paiiv were forced, perhaps willingly, to join the enemv. I have received information that a party of Indians entered the settlement near traders Hill, t few days past, killed a woman who. - e name I have not learned, and took off 3 or 4 rutrroes. 1 had previously ordered a detachment on artillery, with two compan.es of the militia, drawn from r.en. Flovd's division, to takep.st at Trader's H ill, for the defence of that te.tle - ItiP t. I have reason tn believe the artille.y arrived at the Hill about the time the murder wa; committed, and the milit a soon after, and that the Indians .were pursued. Th residue of the mlit.a taken from Ma jor tlener J Floyd's division, (five companies.) are ordered to this place, for the purpose of retiiforcuiir Gen. Glascock's command, expect rig one company, which will be ported near the II g Bend of Ocmulgx e. The detacl.m. nt under Uric. General Glas cock, delayed by rainy weather, bad nuds, and Want of punciual.ty in the contractor's department, will not be able to fonn a junction wi;h xne vj. tate' troops at Fort Scott before the 2Vd of the present month and as a irreat part of the detachment will probably be disposed to return nome soon ner the end of the month, there is reason to apprehend the time .will be too limited to make such an impression upon tin - savage, (wi ich one decisive victory would effect) as to put an end to the war, and leave them convinced, that their future aafety will depend alone upon the observance of peace on their part. I have therefore to request the f .vorof your excellency, to furnish an additional detach. ment of militia, to consist of four battalions of infantry, with four companies of riflemen, to assemble at this place on the first ol the next month, prepared for a three month's tour of duty, in the service of tlie United States. I shall make arrangvments for the necessary upplies to be in readi iesat this place in due time, fur arming, equipingand subsulin 3 the ueiacutnent. . I have the honor to be, with high consiicra tion aud respect your mol obedient sgrvant, E. P. GAINES, mj. gen. com'g. Uis Eic Gov. Ilabun. Copy ofa letter from David C.

Front Ike National Intelligrncer, Jan. 24. The Commutation Bill i at lenjrtli rejected. nv a mainntv "! two votes, in the House ot tie presentutives 1 and it is thus determined to a bide by the original terms nf contract with the soldier. We believe we do not err in sayi lp, that the sve. sion to varying, in any manner, the terms of tli;.t contract, formed a preponderating argument on the minds of those who o:ed against, the bill. It is p;onosed, bv a bill reported in the House of Representatives to add another star to our constellation, by accepting Illinois into the Union. From the Savannah Hepubliran, Jan. 14.

Conner's Point, Jan. 15, 1818. Respected friends Un exiniiuinz vnur paper ol the Zo'h of I;u - t month, I perceived an ac count of a malignant fever prevailing in one of 'ho jails ol yourcit), which brought lo my mind many cnvuuis'aoies respecting that disorder within about fifty years. The Art happened at the memorable time when the ludians fled to Philadelphia fiom the nursuit of the Paxlon boys, (as they tidied themselves) ; they were put in, and guarded at t..e barrack?, where they iioon contracted a malignant fever, which was then called thn jail fe - cer. 01 winch few, if any, recovered, until they were conducted by some of ihfir guard to the woodland on the Schuylkill, where they procur ed the herb called by them phipiisnway, in great plenty l by tho use of which (as I was informed) the sick all recovered, aud their disorder entirely ceased. Soon after th;s, a young man came from one of the Ve?l - lii.ha blands ill with the j ut lever, which he hud contracted by long confinement iu onon. lie was attfuued by several physinaus who gave him up; but an old acquaintance, A'hocarae to see him, found hi; disorder to be tho same as that of the Indian;, who had told him how they used the phipsissiway when he was with 15 em to procure it ; which was, lo make a trong tea of it, and when symptoms ol Uie re turn or iucreise nf the fever appeared, to give it hot and plenty till it produced perspiration. This was done throe successive days, on eachofwliich he was better than on the preceding. .7ftrr the third day, his fever did not return, and he was in good health as soon as he could gather strength. In ihe winter of 1 1 iO and 7. iren. Howe, turn ed the American prisoners out ol New - York, oa account of their hav ing a malignant putrid lover. Most of them died 00 tha road ; but one ol them, who had served his time with me, reached my house, apparently at the point of death ; and - noJter whose usual residence was nt tnv bro ther's .' - - try, reached there in the like tab My brother sent for the lale Dr. John Redman to tee bis man ; the doctor, after his visit there, came to see me as au old friend ; and bruig in formed pf the sick soldier, went in with me to ee him, but on examiuation did not advise any medicine ; and went down stairs, and said, he thought the man would not survive until that time to morrow and added that he would not insure him for 90 per cent. On visiting the man at the ferry next day, and bearing the one at my house was alive, he came lo see him, an J said he had never teen so great an alteration, and inquired what we had given him. 4 inform ed him we had riven Phipsiwiway tea very stron; and as hot as he could drink, at night, which caused pmluse perspiration, and for Ins drink a decoction of sassafras root and the bark of black aldr. The doctor dcVtred I woulJ treat the man at the ferry in the tame Way. I took some of the ingredients to the ferry th avetiing following : the PhipsUsiway was given as before : it had the like effect for that night, but next morning before sun - rise he was seen walking round the stable ; he said he was as well as ever, only weak ; but sweat sw that be could not lay in bed ; this beio one of lu coldest nights, that winter, the . consequence was, that he was attacked with the pleurisy, which soon terminated ms existence. From the last mentioned time to tha present, we have used the I'imusiway to great advan tage in most'kinds of ferer, varying the manner agreeable toircumslancea with the other arti cles occasionally. To relate a tenth part 01 the benefit I nave known from the use of the above articles woald be too treat an nndetiakinr, now in the 83d year of my age ; but hope the above will produce a more general use than hitherto. If you deem tins or any part of it worth publication, alter cor rection, it is at your service. 1 had commenced writing the above, soon ai ter your first mention of the lever . but bearing nothing further of it untd a lew days past, 1 Doped it had subsided 1 but seeing by a late paper that it ilill continues, I was induced to write the above. And remain respectfully vonr real friend. JOSEPH COOPER. MONTREAL. Jan. 17. Th isf&thor on Mnmluv.

It is supposed it has acquired friend - by an amendment, since agreed to, which has increased the proposed commutation of money for the soldiers' lands to Uie rate of one dollar per acre.
